Black Diamond Boots: Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boot
How awesome are the Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boots? Oh, let me count the ways. That’s right, poetry reference. But hey, given the way the different aspects of these boots work together in perfect harmony, why not?
Black Diamond’s goal in designing these boots was two-fold: Maximum Comfort, and Accurate Fit. They accomplished this through the many features they included. For starters: A larger, naturally shaped steel toe cap allows for complete freedom of toe movement. And the heel is anatomically tapered to hold your feet snugly and comfortably in place, eliminating heel slippage. Waterproof rubber assures your feet will stay dry so you can keep your focus on something more important than your boots, like fighting fires.
Black Diamond’s Comfort Fit System utilizes an Ortholite footbed that is breathable, long-lasting, and durable. Under the footbed is a high-density polyurethane midsole which absorbs energy and provides cushioning.
Of course, comfort and fit doesn’t matter much without safety. But with Black Diamond, that’s a given. These 9451 Rubber Firefighting Boots meet or exceed three different standards. Impressive. They include: the NFPA 2007 Edition Standard for structural fire fighting, the ANSI 1991 Standard for personal protective footwear, and the CSA 92 protective footwear standard. It’s also been certified by OSHA on the federal level, as well as by California’s stringent OSHA standards.
Here’s why: the Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Rubber Firefighter Boot feature a Kevlar/Nomex leg lining. Yes, that’s Kevlar, the thing they make bullet-proof vests out of. They also have a 3.5 mm heavy corrugated roll tibia protector, a double-ridged steel shank, a stainless steel PR plate, and a steel toe. The toe lining is .76 mm net lining calendar coated, and the insulation is 4.8 mm open cell foam. Stitched-down linings ensure no liner pull-out. The pull-on loops are coated with rubber, for better durability.
There’s not much time to think about what your boots need to do when you’re in the midst of fighting a fire. You need to be focused on, you know, fighting the fire. The Black Diamond Men's 9451 Steel Toe Insulated Kevlar Lined Waterproof Rubber Firefighter Boots need to do their job, so you can do yours. So take a moment today and think about it. Your feet will thank you.
